John Muir (Author)

Description

The papers brought together in this volume span a period of twenty-nine years of Muir's life, during which they appeared as letters and articles, for the most part in publications of limited and local circulation. Some of these papers were revised by the author during the later years of his life, and these revisions are a part of the form in which they now appear. The recital of his experiences during a stormy night on the summit of Mount Shasta will take rank among the most thrilling of his records of adventure.

About the Author

John Muir (1838-1914) was a naturalist, author, environmental activist, and one of the earliest advocates for the preservation and protection of wilderness lands in the United States. Thanks to Muir's relentless activism, some of California's most beloved national parks have been protected and maintained throughout the years, including Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park, and much of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Muir also founded the Sierra Club in 1892, an influential environmental organization still in existence today. A prolific writer, Muir used his talents of rhetorical persuasion to help enact other key legislation that was integral to the preservation of natural resources throughout our land.
